VACAVILLE — A Nordstrom Rack is scheduled to open this fall at the Nut Tree center, Nordstrom announced Thursday.

“We’re excited to bring our customers in Vacaville a Nordstrom Rack store closer to home with our new location at the Nut Tree,” Karen McKibbin, president of Nordstrom Rack, said in a news release.

This will be the first Nordstrom Rack location in Vacaville, according to the release.

Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom Inc., offering customers apparel, accessories and shoes, according to the release.

The Nut Tree center covers 371,000 square feet of retail and office development.

Nut Tree opened in 1921 as a small roadside fruit stand that grew into a notable restaurant, gift shop and toy store along with the Nut Tree Railroad. The restaurant closed in 1996 and in 2015 the towering sign along Interstate 80 that for decades marked the original Nut Tree came down.
